SEMO Geocaching

The other day I got the itch to go geocaching. The bad thing about Stratton and I geocaching so much is that we have to travel a little further now to find new ones. Well, a fellow geocacher has taken it upon himself to place a bunch of geocache around SEMO. So, I called my dad and the three of us made our way up to SEMO to find some goecache. 

Here is what we found!

Stratton didn't want to take a picture. He was being a little bit of a turd.I found an old shoe in the bushes before my dad actually found the geocache further up in the bushes.

 My dad and Stratton were playing in the fountain. My dad was showing him how to make hand prints on the concrete.
This was a pretty neat way to hide a geocache. It was up under the picnic table and it was tied by a wire. Stratton was too busy filling his pants to take a picture with me for this one. 

 We couldn't get him to look at the camera. He just kept giving me hugs and kisses.  This cache was hanging up in the tree by a little wire. It was a pretty neat place to put it but I'm pretty sure a lot of college kids pee in that corner after a long night of drinking.
 He and my dad had to go investigate a bird that was on the ground. Don't worry it was alive. 

After we found the towers geocache we decided it was time to eat so we went to the Cafe n' Me for dinner. Stratton always eats SO much when we go there so I knew if we went he would have a full belly and be ready to go home and take a bath and go to bed early. After we ate we decided to do one more though. It was right down the street from the Cafe n' Me so we stopped and picked it up.

Stratton stayed in the car for this one so my dad and I parked close and found it pretty quick. It was tucked in what the hint called "a great place to put Easter egss." NOT TRUE! Those bushes were full of pointy thorns. The only eggs I would hide in there for Easter would be for kids I don't like. Haha.

I'm going to be putting a few geocache out in the very near future. If you know anyone or you yourself would like to join me for some geocaching fun please call or message me. I'm always looking for someone to go with me on my adventures besides Stratton.

Friday Confessions

I confess that I took a small coma yesterday afternoon. I fell asleep at 5pm and woke up around 9:30pm, put Stratton to bed and then went back to bed at 10pm and didn't wake up again until 7:30 this morning. I was REALLY tired apparently,

I confess that I had tuna for breakfast. Yes, tuna.

I confess I'm going to a horrorfest next weekend called the St Louis Contamination Convention. It's got a lot of scary movie actors there. I'm going for Derek.

I confess that even though I took a small coma yesterday I could totally take a nap right now and it's only 10:30 in the morning.

I confess I can not wait for this weekend! Stratton and I are going to hang out with my friend Leslie and her little boy JD! I'm making strawberry pie! YUMM!

I confess I drug my son and dad around SEMO's campus the other day to find geocache. They enjoyed it. Kind of.  Anyone who wants to come try geocaching with me is more than welcome to join!

I confess when I was in 5th grade I became a total outcast by all the girls in my class because I told them I hated the Spice Girls (which was totally true, they were horrible).

I confess the same thing happened when I was in 3rd grade because I hated to read the Babysitters Club books. Those were horrible too! I would much rather have read goosebumps. That was some fine writing right there.

I confess when I was in preschool I got kicked by a little boy that wanted the carpet square I was sitting on. I didn't move so I got a size 10 cowboy boot to the chest. My grandpa came and picked me up that day and had a "talk" with him. It was great.

I confess when I was little I used to sleep with a blankey. I still have a little sliver of it that I keep in my jewelry box. I have another blanket that I used to sleep with when I was a little older that I still have that my grandma made. It's about to fall to pieces now but I still love it.
